NO, I DON’T THINK DJT IS THE MESSIAH BUT…

No, I don’t think President Trump is the Messiah but I do think he is  called and chosen by God to be President of the United States.  And I think that is because it is a time on God’s calendar to move some things in Israel.  President Trump has proven that he was the one who could get it done.

This is my perspective and an explanation of how many Christians view President Trump’s place in the calendar of time shown by God’s chosen people: in this case I’m talking about Israel.  (We are all his chosen if we except his salvation to us.)

My sister called me the other day and said, “Oneta, I’ve been reading Isaiah 45 and reading about Cyrus.  There are so many things that are similar to President Trump.”  That reminded me of an essay I wrote way back in 2003.   Of course then I knew nothing of what would develop in these past two decades, but there are some parts of it that I find fascinating.

In the time of Cyrus (about 550 BC) the Jewish people were in captivity far from the land of their father Abraham, the land God had promised to them.  Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed.  That destruction happened under a Babylonian king.

A hundred and fifty years before Cyrus was King of Persia, Isaiah had prophesied about a coming deliverer named Cyrus.

Isaiah 44:28 who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd
and will accomplish all that I please;
he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,”
and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.”’

 Isaiah 45:1-3 “This is what the Lord says to his anointed,
to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of
to subdue nations before him……so that you may know that I am the Lord,  the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

Isaiah 45:13 I will raise up Cyrus[a] in my righteousness:
I will make all his ways straight. He will rebuild my city
and set my exiles free, but not for a price or reward,
says the Lord Almighty.”

I’ll  not recount the story of Cyrus here but suffice it to say, he was the Persian King who along with King Darius sent the Jews back to their land to rebuild Jerusalem.

I think God also appointed President Trump for this time because there are prophesies to be fulfilled.  He has been very active  by recognizing Jerusalem as capital,  land assignments, a “peace plan” between Israel and surrounding nations.

What now will unfold?  I don’t know but if God needs President Trump for another four years, come hell or high waters (make that New York Times or Democratic Party) he will be elected.

But what if it doesn’t happen?  Then God’s time table will move on, perhaps without an America as we have known her.

GOOGLE AND ME?

Dear Blogging Friends, rejoice a bit with me.  I have made it quite plain that I believed the Lord directed me to begin blogging as a way to tell what he had done for me in the many years he healed me without medical intervention and how he worked with me as I have now been helped via the medical community.  Either way he is my Healer.  But many do not know he is still healing divinely/miraculously.

In the five years since I started blogging, there have been a lot of readers who read Jehovah-repha* .  In 2019 there were 2487 readers average 7 per day; this year 2020 so far is 3487 readers average 12 per day.  So far today there have been 10 today.  That one post five years ago accounts for about 20-30% evcry day. I have been very curious about how that happens but I was confident the Lord must have his hand in it.

Well last week I was doing a bit of research to answer a question for a reader.  Guess what I found!  I googled Jehovah-repha , the Healer.  There is my post (page) on the first page about five sources down!  Now I have no idea how God worked that but I sure didn’t have the money or fame to get there!  I don’t know how long it will stay but I guess it will be there ’til God reaches the folks he wants to reach.  I have no power to put it there nor to keep it there.

The Lord God continually amazes me with some of the things He is up to.

THE AFTERMATH

Thousands of after Talak  in a land across the waters, decisions were being made.  Which child lives?  Which child dies?  Do I have enough income for another mouth to feed?  Does it fit into my life’s goals?  Will the community think ill of me if they know I’m pregnant?  Will he marry me?  How can I continue my education?  Will it be healthy?  Will my insurance pay?  Will Planned Parenthood help me?

“Yes,” replies Planned Parenthood, “there is help available.”  The help was a loving but stern assistant to whom Della goes for help.

So here she lies, on a cold sterile counter in a cold sterile room being “arranged” in a cold sterile manner, awaiting the arrival of the doctor who would remove this fetus from her.  Della’s mind roams and a tear runs down her check.  Is it a boy or a girl?  Would it have red hair like hers?  What’s a fetus?  Isn’t it a baby?

Della is assured that the pain will only be minor and last only a little while.  The needle is inserted and the solution does the job.  The dead blob is pulled out of Della’s body.

Years later Della’s mind roams and a tear runs down her check.  Was it a boy or a girl?  Would it have had red hair like hers?  She knew it was a baby.  Her baby.  It would be giving her hugs at night instead of unspoken memories.

“Ah, but no problem,” says the community, “we signed the papers that made it legal.”

God turned his face from them.  And the storms came, the snow fell, the flood waters rose high, the fires burned, disease was rampant, intruders came into the land, rebellion and violence were given birth.

But although God’s face was turned, his ear was open.  His words were before them.

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will heal their land.”

THIS ONE INCH PIECE OF LIFE

“Will you take it and drop it in the lake?”  I asked Sammy.

“Yes,” he replied, “but he probably won’t last long.  He’s a tropical fish.”

“I know, but I’m tired of him.  I’ll let nature take it’s course.”

“It might be against the law to introduce a foreign species…” he said.

“Oh, maybe so, with all the silly environmental laws,” I admit.  “So what can I do with him?  I’ve thought about putting his bowl on the patio and see if a bird or cat might take care of the problem.  I just can’t handle knocking him in the head, burying him in the ground, or flushing him down the drain.”

So saying, I cleaned his bowl and put him back. I will keep him.

This one inch long little piece of life.

TALAK’S CHOICE

Engraving From 1873 Featuring Ancient God, Moloch And A Child Sacrifice.

His wife cringed in compliance as Talak chose which child to take to Molech.  A hard decision.  Perhaps Molech would be satisfied with Chela.  She was smallest.  More pliable.  Less spirited.  Had a disfigured arm.  Slower to comprehend her father’s reason for taking her.  But would Molech approve?  Perhaps Molech would take Chela and still demand another.  Talak’s brother had had to give three children to the fire before his life became any better.

The neighbors agreed that Talak needed to appease the gods.  So Talak took Chela.  They understood.  So they dropped their eyes and turned away.  Some realizing they would chose to do the same thing in like circumstances.

And God turned his face from them.  Their civilizations were trampled by vicious horsemen from afar.

20 The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molek is to be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people; for by sacrificing his children to Molek, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molek and if they fail to put him to death, I myself will set my face against him and his family and will cut them off from their people together with all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molek.  (Leviticus 20:1-5 NIV)

HOUSE OF AN OLD WOMAN

Just making my way from room to room and finding albums, pictures, scrapbooks, memorabilia lying around all over the place, I’m thinking “I declare if this weren’t my house, I’d think an old woman lived here.”

Ta Da, I’m off to have some fun with my memories, do some walking, see my family.  Thanking Jesus for my life.  Frustrating sometimes, but good and there’s hope for better.

LET’S CHAT – LET ME RANT

First I want to explain that my post yesterday, “It Takes a Village” was meant as a dire warning as to what might happen if big government gets more control over family life.  It is insane what some people have to go through if an “anonymous” person turns you in to the Child Welfare system.  Sometimes this can happen through a deliberate attempt to cause trouble; other times a person might be legitimately concerned but does not want to actually “be involved.”  One such circumstance might be that a child tells someone that “momma makes me take medicine.”  That turned to Welfare can become a $50,000 nightmare!

Such a statement as that makes me consider what is most reasonable, a mother determined to overdose her child or possible a mother who insists the child continue taking medicine for ten days just like the doctor said.  The child thinks he can stop when his tummy or throat quits hurting.

Like it or not this demands lawyers who demand money, more money, more money, then add psychologists who demand money, more money, more money then add counselors who demand more money, then add guardian ad litems who demand money, more money, more money.  Then there is gas and car.  On call to go see “whoever” at the drop of a hat.  Of course it might be schedules for next week that just means slowing down the time to get the child back.   It is viscous!

And another thing this is more apt to be happening to a middle class or lower middle class family who has some resources (or has family who has resources) than to the poverty stricken and addiction driven families who the system knows cannot come up with money.  Therefore the children in those continue to be hammered!

Well that was first, but I’m making it last also.  Too wound up.

Another case in point is that I see some private school has been ordered to be closed because of covid.  It’s a private school!  Parents do not have to send the kids if they don’t want to.  And very few will choose to do so if they think the school is unsafe.

You would think government would value keeping kids in school since some of them pay as much as $30,000 per pupil when they are at school!  No educational loss to the child is too much when it serves the purpose of pulling down President Trump!  Let the kids suffer!

I started with the title “Let’s Chat.”  That did not seem to go with this post so I amended to say “Let Me Rant.”  😀

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

If Ammie had not had to go to the hospital, the chair wouldn’t cause me so much pain.

“She’s okay,” the doctor said.  “She has a brilliant mind.  We are going to keep her for some testing and studies.”

It has been two months.  They say they are going to keep her.  They will be able to do much more for her than I.  They will make her into a giant of a cosmo scientist  They will provide everything.

I get to visit her every week as she is weaned from me.

A less brilliant child’s mom might need it.

SUNDAY’S SIMPLE SERMON, Sept. 20, 2020


 Love: So thankful for love so deep it doesn’t have to be expressed to be known – and also for love so deep that it calls to us in words sometimes also.

Most people never find this kind of love on earth except through knowing the love of God.  May you be surrounded by a consciousness of that love today.

WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?

first aid

I have a reasonable supply of first aid on hand in case of emergency.  If a couple kids fall out of tree and scratch their knees, no problem.  If twenty kids fall out at the same time, I’m probably going to need to send for extra ASAP.  With that in mind I am considering politics.

President Trump has received a lot of criticism for not having masks, gloves, ventilators, etc,  available for this covid crises.  Who used them up and left the shelves bare?  Why didn’t Obama leave enough for an emergency?  Shouldn’t President Trump keep enough available for the next crises, whether he is still in office or if someone else is?  If there is another flu outbreak next year and Joe Biden is president does he order the supplies?  Or will it be President Trump’s fault that they aren’t stocked?  Who decided how much might be needed?  Do the taxpayerx want to pay for the ultimate possibility of emergency needs?  We now have many unused respirators.  Should we buy more because the next pandemic might be worse?  Or what if the next pandemic doesn’t need respirators; it demands equipment for blood transfusions and the money was spent on respirators?  Is this criticism of President Trump fair?

Just asking.
